Its been almost a month now since I finished the original seven seasons of Gilmore Girls, and already I’m starting to get major withdrawal symptoms. I first saw this tag over on Read by Zoe’s channel a couple of years ago now, and so thought that now was the perfect time to give it a go, even if this tag is pretty old now!
This tag was originally created by Pucksandpaperbacks.
As soon as I saw this, I instantly thought of Six of Crows, and Jesper, whose quick remarks I could not get enough of. I loved reading Jesper’s witty remarks, and loved how his humour continued throughout all of the dramatic things that happen during this book.
This one has to be The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It is one of my all-time favourite books as I just adore everything about this one, and so it is definitely my favourite classic.
I feel like I am one of the very few people who actually really enjoyed The Last Star by Rick Yancey. Everyone seemed to have either already given up on this series by this point, or just not enjoyed this book for whatever reason, so I definitely think I have sub-consciously not spoken about this book all that much because of just how many people didn’t enjoy it.
I knew as soon as I saw this question that August Flynn was the perfect pick for this it. I adored his character in This Savage Song, and loved how music was intertwined into the story.
This one took me a while to think of, until I remembered how much I loved Loki from the Trylle Trilogy. This is such an underrated series, but one that I absolutely adored when I was younger, especially after we were introduced to the character of Loki in the second book, and he quickly became one of my first bookish crushes.
I read this The Sun is Also a Star in the space of only two days, which for me is pretty good going, because I just couldn’t stop reading this book. As soon as I started this one, I just fell straight into this story and couldn’t wait to see what happened next with the plot and the characters themselves.
I have heard so many people say that they didn’t really enjoy Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh, and yet it is likely my favourite book of the year so far. I adored everything about this one, from the characters to the fast paced plot. I am already highly anticipating the sequel that comes out next year, because I just need so much more of this world and these characters!
I think I’m going to have to go with Shatter Me for this one. Whilst I did know before reading it that it was not the most unique or the best written series by any means, I was still expecting a little more from this book than I got. Whilst I did enjoy it at the time, looking back to it, I realise how similar it is to so many other YA dystopians, and so I’m pretty sure one of the only reasons I really enjoyed this book was how addictive it was, and not because of the plot or characters themselves.
Strange the Dreamer was definitely a little more expensive than my usual books. Although it wasn’t hugely expensive, for someone who almost never buys hardcover books, this one definitely cost me more than most of my other books did!
One of the things I loved most about The Unexpected Everything was watching our main character Andie learn to let go and just let things play out on their own, so I think I’m going to have to go for her for this one.
Adam Parrish goes through so much in the space of the Raven Cycle Series, and I love him so much for it. His character just develops and evolves so much that by The Raven King I absolutely adored the character he had become.
